1. Visit old Dutch Ford

Take a break from the sandy beaches and pay a visit to this ford built by the Dutch in 1670 for storage and protection of tin supplies. The ruins are actually the remnants of an outpost of the Dutch’s attempts to control trade in the Malay Peninsula. While it may not look like it, this place used to sit fire cannons as well. The ford was destroyed in 1690 by the Malays but rebuilt by the Dutch in 1743 where it was guarded by 60 soldiers until 1748.
